HomeI MUA Newsroom KSK Class of 2018 looks to give back with Senior Service Day
Seniors from SSD 2014 partnered with DLNR and the ‘Ohana of Kā‘ena Point to educate off-roaders and locals about the dangers of motor vehicles and pallet fires. Students cleaned Mākua Valley of nails, replanted native naupaka that was dug up from careless off-roaders, and made signs to remind visitors and kama‘āina about the fragile - and sacred - ecosystems that exist at Kā‘ena.

KSK Class of 2018 looks to give back with Senior Service Day

Have a service project that you or your organization wants to complete but doesn't have the manpower to do so? Have a service agency or organization in mind that deserves helping hands?

On Wednesday, Oct. 25, Kamehameha Kapālama will be mobilizing 450 high school seniors to multiple service agencies throughout the island as part of its annual "Senior Service Day."

Confirmed community partnerships (updated as of 8/22) thus far include:

For each organization, KSK can either provide 20 or 40 students (accompanied by three to five teachers), depending on each organizationʻs needs. Students are able to assist each service project from about 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

There are no strings attached to this service opportunity. KSK will even provide lunch for the organizations staff/volunteers who work with us as a token of appreciation.

All interested applicants need to complete this form:

New service requests will be put on a waiting list if any confirmed requests do not materialize. KS Kapālama will contact the organization if the service request has been selected. Please understand that not all requests will be selected.
